This car is pretty sick. I just have one question, does the exhaust being that close to the tires have any effect at all on the tire? To much heat? Just curious

Awesome machine there! I guess a bantam body from an altered or a resin casting specialist would be a good source for the coupe. The radiator looks like a T bucket style.
